Mark Williams, Managing Director at NWH Group, said: “We’re delighted that John has taken up the role of chairman. His contribution as a non-exec over the last few years has been exceptional. His business experience, particularly in the areas of strategy and acquisition, will be invaluable as we continue to expand our offering in new geographical locations, and we look forward to working with John in this new role.”
John is a qualified BSc (Hons) Engineer with an MBA from Cranfield School of Management at Cranfield University. He also previously held roles as chief executive of Enterprise Foods and chairman at Memex.
